12/11/2019: True Grit

Gritblasting as a cleaning method has more to it than may meet the eye. With the variety of cleaning media available, it is possible to select exactly the right one, not only for removing whatever contamination needs to be removed, but also for preserving the often delicate stonework beneath.

It is also possible to select precisely the wrong one and do more harm than good.

The selection process has to take into account, not only the size of grains to be used, but their sharpness, hardness, shape and chemical composition to make sure of the perfect cleaning job every time. If you have a stone or steelwork cleaning project to complete, it is worth taking into account that we have 30 years of experience in making the decisions that make the difference, and can advise on every aspect including the choice between:

  • Iron Silicate
  • Steel Shot
  • Steel Grit
  • Aluminium Silicate
  • Glass Grit
  • Garnet
  • Aluminium Oxide
  • Pumice Grit
  • Glass Bead
  • Calcium Silicate
  • Bicarbonate Of Soda
  • Plastic Abrasive Grit
  • Walnut Shell
  • Corn Cob Grit
